Dertilis was convicted of the murder of a student during the Polytechnic Uprising by students in Athens in 1973, however, unlike other jailed junta prisoners he refused all compromises with the country's subsequent governments and remained in prison despite repeated offers of early release.
His funeral yesterday was conducted by Greek Orthodox Bishop Amvrosios who compared the disgraced general to independence war hero, Kolokotronis and the ancient Greek philosopher, Socrates. The service was attended by 200 far right supporters including six Golden Dawn MPs.
The post's headline is a translation of today's edition of The Eleutheros Kosmos (Free World) newspaper also had free with today's issue a copy of Robert Bolton's Revolution From Above complete with Nazi designed anti-Semitic poster as its cover (see photo above).
Even more mainstream Greek media such as conservative daily, Kathimerini gave Dertilis a glowing obituary which described him as a "good officer".
